Saturday August 9 saw the annual 3-on-3 basketball tournament play out in the basket ball court at Journey middle school. It started in 2000 as a 3-on-3 tournament, and the past decade it’s been referred to as the Trevor Purdy Memorial 3-on-3. According to organizer Trevor Bligh, they have raised funds in the past for Canucks place and MADD charities. This year, $375 were raised for the Trevor Purdy bursary that goes out to an EMCS student every year.
